If you are like me there is always a new project formulating in the back of your mind. Whether its new pillows, new paint, new rugs, new bath…the wheels are always turning! It never ends!(as my husband can attest to!)
At this time of year as we pack away the holiday decor and put our everyday things back out, they suddenly start to feel old, boring and dated. So why not freshen it up a bit? It’s time to RElove your home!
Start with wall color, one of the easiest ways to change the whole feel of a room, is through paint. The elegant living room above uses Gray owl on the walls. Why not change to something more subtle, soft and soothing? Gray Owl OC-52, one of my favorite shades throws a cast of blue while remaining gray and soothing.
Tired of those red walls? How about trying a beautiful coral shade like Tropical Fruit CSP-1115, everyone looks beautiful against the warm glow of pink shades, great for dining rooms! Or try Passion Fruit by Benjamin Moore 2171-40, it works well with naturals and neutral like shades of gray and brown.
Color trends for this year are shades of white, yes there are millions of shades of white, some favorites are Simply White OC-117 and Mascarpone AF-20, both create a soft, warm and inviting atmosphere.
Warm whites can be a perfect back drop for wood tones, nature, and any lovely objects that you would like to display.
Other clients both had pine tables from Prince of Wales. We had the table top painted as well as the base to give a gray washed look. Take a peek below.
Lastly, lighting can really transform a room. Switch out your lamps, chandelier,or sconces. There should always be at least three sources of light in the room, overhead, task and ambient. Check out some of these stunning new products and envision how they can light up your life!
